BEWLEY’S IS SET to re-open its Grafton Street cafe tomorrow, several months after the business said it would close down permanently. 

In May, employees were told that the landmark cafe would close due to the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic – causing the loss of 110 jobs.

At the end of July, the business confirmed that the cafe would re-open on a phased basis. 

It will re-open its doors at 10am tomorrow after months of closure. Staff working in the cafe before the pandemic have been rehired, the company said. 

The owner of Bewley’s Grafton St, Paddy Campbell, said the recovery from this pandemic should be “culture and values led”. 

“We’ve lost so much that was unique and authentic to our community and we are all poorer for it. This time, the economic story cannot be the sole focus as we rebuild ourselves,” Campbell said in a statement. 

“We look forward to welcoming our wonderful customers back through the doors.”

The cafe will operate with table service and a limited menu featuring teas, coffees and pastries.
